I thought this federal ban was only for the interstate transportation and importation of these species. Its not an outright ban. If there are burm breeders in Virginia, won't you still be able to legally obtain an animal from them?

yea i was told it was a full ban haha now that ive actually gone and fully read it yea its just interstate transport. i dont know of any breeders since almost everyone that i know are babies when it comes to snakes but i guess thats a fairly common reaction to them

Yes, my name is Jesse.

If I had any experience with large snakes I would take on some burms and other giants to breed them, but the largest snake I own is only a colombian red tail boa. Wish I had the experience and space.

I already have a reptile room (more of an animal room really, because it also houses my ferrets, fish tank, and bird) and I'm running out of space. We are hoping to move this summer and get a bigger place. Then I can expand my collection!

Correct me if i am wrong but i thought the ban only stops transportation i dont think it stops local breeding.. So i am pretty sure you can buy them locally?

well i was told last night by the pet store that they can no longer carry any type of "large constrictor" so no boas or pythons. and i went to 2 different stores last night. one of managers told me that with the new ban in effect youre going to have to register the animals for a pretty penny and if youre cought with one thats unregistered you get to pay a fine. i dont know how accurate that is but it kinda mad me sad....

yea i dont think it will either but you never know. they are using the psycho who let all his go before killing himself and the incedent in florida be the basis for this law.

If the virginia bans go in effect any snakes bought before July 1, 2012 will be grandfathered in. Keep an eye on this law and if it gains momentum buy before then.

yea i know ive read it a few times and even printed it and highlighted important parts. including the grandfather protection of any species baught before july 1. the thing is if im going to be able to get one by then and even after that theres no breeding and if it dies im sol and cant get another one which kinda sucks. idk i just dont understand how the can pass something with out haveing actual hard evidence. they are mainly going off the incedent in florida, but what they do not want to understand is that those snakes wouldnt be able to survive in our climate its too cold. even if a few were to servive they would never be able to breed, the temps dont get hot enough for incubation. but the people of congress are biased in their thinking when it comes to certain subjects including this one. most epople grow up being taught to hate and fear specific animals snakes being amoungst the top 5 but they never actually interact with a snake they dont know what its like to watch them hatch and they dont know how it feels to hold one for the first time and know thats going to be the newest part of your family. and the worst part is, they dont want to. and for that i pitty them honestly.
